Chrysler is recalling 464,315 2001 and 2002 Chrysler PT Cruisers to install a secondary seal to the top of the fuel pump module after a fuel leak was detected during an inspection following a government crash test.

The company says there are no known incidents or complaints related to the issue but it is taking the precautionary measure to reduce the possibility of fuel leakage in a severe collision.

A Chrysler spokeswoman told just-auto the recall also applies to vehicles sold overseas, including right-hand drive versions.

In addition, approximately one-quarter of the PT Cruisers will also be recalled to check the under-bonnet fuel supply line which may rub against the air conditioning service port and could result in a fuel leak.

Dealers will attach a clip to the fuel line to prevent contact.
